I could really use an API call or data set that included ...

for a given lat/long, return to me venue names, along with Foursquare, Facebook, Yelp & Google IDs

        OMG this would be so useful. I'm currently talking the venue merging problem, using Foursquare as my default case. I think Gowalla is the only one that's solved this problem publicly, but they don't expose it as a service. Though when you check-in with their API, they do return the foursquare venue id.

        Ideally the list would be a deduped. And given a venue name and lat/long provide a list of possible matches across facebook, foursquare, yelp and google.
